It's that time again /tg/. Rev up those art programs, because its time to build world of colorful critters. The goal of this Game is to see far the evolution of these critters go, and to also see how many days we can keep this running of course. As GM, I'll be actively working to make phylogeny charts to track the evolutions, and also throw in some random events to keep this interesting.How to play:• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species• Save as .PNG!• Post your new species in the thread with a description of what evolution you've added and why.• Adding size increments or names is optional, but would be appreciated.Notes:• Unless stated explicitly, no species ever goes extinct. Old species can still evolve, even if they're not on the latest "chain"• Try to make your evolutions gradual and realistic• Every 3-4 hours I'll add an update Phylogeny Chart to track changes.• Every 12-24 hours I'll be rolling for a Random World Event.• Have funThe Setting:The planet is similar to Earth around the early Cambrian Era. It's currently mostly covered in oceans. The animals in it are tiny and sightless. The landmasses of the planet are desolate, and not viable for most animal life at this time.
do you post the single species too?
>>43024189Coming right up
>>43024144The algea evolved, it now produces a chemical in its body that is mildly toxic to mulu. It also made the algea a brighter, more attractive color.I did it because I like to see nature kill itself.
>>43024298Some Cerar develope thorns for feeling prey and watermovements
>>43024298A branch developes cells which can sense electro fields
>>43024340A Mulu species evolve a fin membram which helps them to swim better
>>43024340Some Mulus with smelling membranes help them to see other predators and differ from eatable and toxic algea
>>43024245Braf evolved longer bodies to increase their swimming speed and muscle mass.
>>43024218Because of the predators, some Algea develope potruberances to drift from nearing predators
>>43024444Some of them develope airbubbles to get nearer to the light and more stable position
>>43024270A sub-species of Bzol develop small thin 'Whiskers' for the purposes of sensing food on the sea bed.
>>43024245The Brafs with a flattened tail can swim quicker and bumbing into prey, which lets the mandibles grabbing them.
>>43024686Some of the bigger Brafs develope light sensitive cells which helps them to see shadow to prey on
>>43024951The whiskered Bzol develop a sharp spike, allowing them to kill injured but still alive prey to devour.
>>43024270Some Bzol developes hardened digging lips to dig them into the earth as protection.
>>43024951Other Spindly Bzols start to develope hardened skin which protects them better
>>43025044Long eye brafs briefly interbreed with tailed brafs, creating a braf with a long body and a fluked tail.
>>43024270Some Bzols get rounder which makes it harder to get eaten and enables them to jump aweay if they are touched
>>43024787Tha Algae has now developed tendrils with miniscule suction cups. It floats towards mulu with its potruberances and uses the cups to attach itself to them, poisoning them and feeding on them via myzocytosis.
>>43024872The algea now produce a protein that causes them to stick together in large sheets near the surface. Blocking out the sun from other algea species.
>>43024218A family starts to grow bigger and some leftovers can regrow to a full leaf.
>>43024218Some Algeas sport a sticky membran and forming tube like colonies. This prevents them being eaten to easily
>>43025415Through some mutation some have a bigger mouth, enables some to eat bigger prey.
>>43025456The offsprings which developed cells that can decrease lenght, enables them to move toward light.
>>43025456Due to the vampiric lifestyle, the next offspring loose much of photosynthesis cells which hardens over time as protection.
>>43025456Some tendril Algea bump into the >>43025473carpets and develope a parasitic lifestyle with them.
>>43025638Some Algeas specialise getting a hard membran and disturb their gas exchange and deform them into spikes.Through these they deposits gas and floating against >>43025473 and grow through them to get more sun
>>43024631>FinMulu.pngThe FinMulu develops large brush like forelimbs to gather ColonyAlgea, and inner pincers to bundle and draw it into their mouths. They gain a larger tail to help them maneuver as being on the surface makes them more vulnerable to predators.
>>43025473The colony algea now produce cellulose over their cell membranes. Making them colonies of large hard sheets covering the sea, and blotting out the sun.They still retain the sticky proteins, and so the under side of these colonies quickly becomes covered in loose debris.
>>43024340Mulu evolve to glow faintly, and by side effect become 20% tastier to predators.
As of 10:30 PM, this is the current Phylogeny of the EvoGame thus far.Couple items of note:• Algea is currently the prevailing clade of the EvoGame, which makes a lot of sense in an ecological sense; but there's been a lack of evolution from our Braf or Cerars.• Thanks to the abundance of Algea, the Oceans and the atmosphere of the planet have started to slowly accumulate a more oxygenated environment. So small organisms now have more breathable air to thrive on.• Mulus have been noted to be eating Algea with little disregard to the potency of many of the Algea species, the Smelling Mulu being a exemption to this. Each Mulu that is not the base Mulu or the Smelling Mulu, roll a 1d12 to determine what happens to them.- 1-2: That Mulu Species is wiped out- 3-4: That Mulu Species a massive drop in its population, but grows a small tolerance for the poison in small quantities- 5-6: That Mulu Species experience a population decline but builds a tolerance for the poison.- 7-8: The Mulu Variant is uneffected by the Poison- 9-10: That Mulu Species becomes resistant to the poison from the Algea plants.- 11-12: The Mulu is able to adapt the poison as a defense.
>>43028547bumping for hostile Algea takeover
>>43026855Cellulose algea now release waste gas inbetween themsleves. Forming hard (like wood) bubbles that float on the water, and block out light. The bubbles stick together in massive colonies that float across the ocean.

>>43029469A large amount of nutrients in some locations causes algea to rapidly bloom and exhibit a reddish pigment.
The Braf develop yet larger mouth parts and shift colour to a more reddish hue to blend i with the mats of algae. This is despite all it's pray lacking sight.

>>43029815The parasitic Cerar has evolved to produce a neurotoxin in it's bite and body. This makes it inedible, dulls the pain of it's bite when hunting prey, and causes the prey to stop stuggling faster.
Good Morning creators. I present to you the updated phylogeny of our world so far. I apologize for the long delay on this chart, but sleep and classes are a thing.Again a couple items of note:• >>43031536 was a briefly observed species of Braf, but rapidly went extinct due to a lack of acute senses to support the species "ideology"• Many shallower spots in the ocean have become 30% darker as a result of the large swathes of >>43029935 that have begun dominating the surface.• Due to the dominace of Algea, more and more Oxygen and Nitrogen have been pumped into the planet's atmosphere, which has stabilized the overall atmosphere.• A random event will occur to the world in one hour's time.
Some of the "FastBraf" creatures begin to develop additional fins in order to travel faster. In addition, unlike their slug ancestors, they have begun to "glide" across the ocean floor in search of prey.[[Question, can two creatures form a symbiotic relationship?]]
>>43033581Random Events will be determined by a d6 die roll.1 = Mass Extinction Event - Each organism needs to roll a d6. Organisms rolling a 4-6 are safe. Top predators (Indicated by Gold Box) rolling a 5-6 are safe. Plants rolling 3 or higher are safe. The Bubble Algea must roll a 5-6 to be safe.2 = Minor Extinction Event - All organisms roll a d6. Rolling a 4-6 means it survives. Organisms with one or less mutations are not effected.3 = Gamma Ray Burst (Mutation) - Latest mutations of organisms roll a d6. Rolling a 1-3 kills the species. Rolling a 4-5 means survival. Rolling a 6 means a mutation of my specifications4 = Cold Snap - Algeas must roll a d6. Algea must roll a 4 or higher, or else its killed in the event.5 = New Species - I introduce a brand new species to the world for nurturing and evolving.6 = Evolutionary Boom - Each Clade of organisms gain a new trait/feature.
>>43033710Yes, but you must give a basic idea on how the relationship works
In order to actively search for prey, the Gliding Braf developed an organ to generate ultrasound emitted through their mouth organ. It's frontal limbs develop dense, hair-like organs that receive echoes bouncing off potential prey.((If this is a little too fast for the Braf Glider, I'll delete the post.))
>>43032389The Cerar develop a swarm mentality, and now form large groups the swarm prey allowing them to take down large prey in a very short time.
Rolled 5 (1d6)
>>43034332>>43033807As time grinds on, the planet sees a brand new species appear in its shallow seas.Introducing the Hawa
>>43034793Didn't there used to be a table that we could roll on? It had like global warming and stuff on it?
>>43025227They develope spikes and use the bottomspikes like legs
>>43034906I think there may have been one, but I've long since lost sight of that particular table.
>>43025227The scale evolve into armor.
>>43031766Some Fin Mulu evolve stronger arm, which can sense water movement from mating rituals or enemies.Also they can grab onto >>43029935 and eat them from bottom.
The Hawa develop cells on their front end capable of detecting electrostatic currents, helping them locate food
>>43031446They develope some protuberances that can smell enemies, mates and food.
>>43026494The ones able to inflate the gas cells can dig them through the algea ceiling >>43029935 and push it away to get sunlight
>>43035298This variation of Hawa eventually turns to a more carnivorous diet, developing larger and stronger fins to navigate the currents more efficiently.
another version of the Hawa eats other small organisms and algae. they have developed fins to navigate faster but don;t have long distance capability
>>43035846forgot to mention it developed thicker skin that helps defend against neurotoxins
>>43035298The ones with a extendible mouth can grab and hunt prey.
>>43035949don't you mean a penis ?
>>43035105The armor eventually grows larger and heavier. For that end, the Bzol also evolves a large amount of small, primitive legs on its bottom, used to scurry along the seafloor
>>43029935The colony algea evolve into primitive plants.They reproduce through cloning, and have developed a primitive root system to grow faster. The shift from colony to plant has also made their shell a bit denser.
An alternate strain of Hawa develop primitive grasping limbs and a rasp mouth on their underside, allowing them to attach to surface floating algae and feed.
>>43036019Plate Bzols roam the sea floor feeding on carrion, plant material, smaller creatures, or anything else they can get their mouths on. Their interlocked plates protect them from larger predators, but do little to prevent parasites from feeding off their slow, fleshy bodies.
>>43026010Evolve thorny, small tendrils that allow them to attach themselves to >>43037512 Plate Bzols in a symbiotic relationship, their toxins protecting them further from predators while feeding from the host.
>>43037022Pygmy Rasp Hawa have larger, frontway facing mouths and better gaspers for tearing plant matter.
>>43037619>>43037512The symbiotic relationship become stronger over generation
>>43024218I new variety of algea appears. It is small and indigestable and when swallowed by other creatures will often pass through unharmed.
>>43035790EvoHawa's develop more powerful and larger mouths, rendering them capable of feeding faster and eating larger prey
>>43024144OP, new phylogeny chart when?
>>43036888The plant colony evolves, and the natural toxins that existed long ago in the algea strengthen. The plants now produce a new strong toxin that kills any animal that feeds on it.It also darkens in color, and now absorbs sunlight more efficiently.
>>43031766Some LongFinMulu evolve grinding teeth to properly digest >>43037931 . They also evolve extra tendrils to grab algae and put it in their mouths, not unlike how earth elephants do. Two of these are tipped in small claws.
>>43038156EaterHawa's sensory cells become more developed and it's mouth becomes even better equipped for rip and tear. To counterbalance this, it also developed bioluminescent patterning on its upper surface, allowing potential prey to avoid it if they spot it first.
>>43037619Attatch themselves to the roots of >>43038353in large numbers. Forming a symbiotic relationship where passing animals are caught by the tendrils and feed both the algea and the plant. Because of the symbiotic relationship >>43037619 has adapted the toxins from the plant into it's own hunting mechanism.
>>43032389The ToxinCerar evolves legs to allow it to crawl along the seafloor at rapid pace. It also develops a semi-permeable membranous shell, allowing oxygen to diffuse directly into its bloodstream from either water or air.
>>43038276It's coming soon. Sorry, lab work impeded my time with Photoshop
>>43037635Due to the long time spent consuming the mild toxins, the Front-jawed RaspHawa has developed a means of extruding fatal volumes of toxins into the water, allowing it to eat toxic algae freely without harm to itself, whilst also deterring predators.
>>43037931>>43038498Nut Algae become even smaller and more indigestable, with denser fibres and a coat of tough hair maker them undesirable as food to most creatures.
>>43039021At last, I bring you the latest Phylogeny as of 4PM CST. Apologies again for the late entry on this Phylogeny. In the future I intend to also add some minor details to the organisms such as their names, and size increments.Anyway, updated details on the world:• The world's atmosphere is now has an equivalent amount of oxygen in the air as the Late Ordovician Era on Earth.• The shores of the now growing landmasses have begun to accumulate a sandy loam, due to the mass amounts of plant matter decomposing in the shallow seas. • There is a distinguishable difference in warm water and cool water habitats in the oceans.• Top predators are identified by the Red Squares, and the most abundant herbivores are identified by Green SquaresPlant algea have become the first complex plant organisms to exist, and willed be referred to in a future clade known as Chlorophyalgea.• The next Random Event will occur at 10PM.Enjoy
>>43039694In swallow seas, rock algae appear. They are small are hard and appar to be tough little pebble to many predators.
>>43038498GrinderMulu develop longer bodies to accommodate their larger digestive system. Also, their grabbing tendrils are now capable of peeling away the furry coat of>>43039694 and allowing them to further thrive upon the algae
>>43037742Symbiotic Algae further develop their primary tendrils into sensitive feelers that they use to alarm the host Bzol of nearby prey or danger.
>>43037742Softskin Bzols develop a greater bond with their toxic algae and begin to lose their hard shells entirely
>>43040030These look like Turtles, and I couldn't resist.
>>43024245Mutabraf suddenly appear from an old strain of Braf. They have the strange ability to incorporate the genetic material of tissue that they ingest. While this by no means gives them the ability to 'steal' traits from other creatures, and while it goes mostly unnoticed, it mean that similar diets over multiple generations can lead to bizarre mutations in line with other creatures.
As many of it's prey has begun developing toxins to ward of predators, the Gliding Braf's internal organs began to evolve in order to purge the toxins more efficiently. The skin of the Gliding Braf now has many microscopic pores which allows it to discharge accumulated toxins.In addition, the creature's body shape has adapted to allow for longer journeys with less effort. The most common Gliding Braf has a total length of 1.8 centimeters.
>>43038730Chlorophyalgea colonies have evolved to take on a standard shape that maximizes surface area for sunlight, and makes the bonds of the colony stronger. They're still toxic and symbiotic with vampire algea.
>>43040473Green Braf have a mildly photosynthetic tissue in their skin that help them get more energy.
>>43040473Some Mutabraf develop sensory hairs on their mandibles
>>43040473This Mutabraf is most intriguing. I expect great things from this species
>>43037742Lumpy Bzol have semi-soft shell that cover most of thieir bodies to protect against predators and parasites.
>>43040694Mutabraf develop a long, ribbon-like tail and quickly grow in size, becoming fomritable predators.
>>43035732Smellermulu grow elongated tails that spin and help propel the creature.
I feel so alone in this thread
>>43040530Because the lower parts of clone clusters don't get sunlight Chlorophyalgea now lose their greenish tint when kept in dark enviorments, and opt to instead grow thicker layers of cellulose to protect themselves from predators, and longer roots to absorb more nutrients for the clone cluster. These roots will keep growing downward until they reach the bottom, and may act as anchors for the cluster.
>>43031949The decoration has evolved to become a tail to be utilized as a weapon, in addition, it also has became segmented for better movement of the tail.
With the extensive sea canopies inhibiting the growth of other species in the open ocean, some inedible algae cling to stones near rougher waters where the canopies are typically swept away before large colonies are formed.
>>43041574 Over generations the protolichens develop more potent hydrophobic adhesive enzymes for a stronger foothold on even the roughest coastlines, coincidentally this means that colonies with the most algae tend to be the hardiest.
>>43041921>algae>i meant lichens
>>43041560>>43041560In response to>>43037742 >>43040006>>43040030The Tailed Braf has its tail further evolved, increasing its length. Its tail also functions as a psuedo mouth, eating the algae protecting the Symbiotic Bzol or Cerar with neurotoxins and extracting the toxins into a pouch which can then be shot out or administered via stinging. The Algae or Cerar is then excreted via vents in the tail.
>>43024298A tiny flat breed of Cerar elove
>>43042083The Algea Toxin has never been said to be the same as the cerar Neuro-toxin. They evolved independently of each other.
>>43040573>>43041921Green Braf, feeding on protolichen, grow rows of hydrophobic bristles.
>>43042160I am aware, it's just a general toxin excretion system, used to acquire toxins from either the Algae or the Cerar.
>>43042166>>43041921Lichen Braf become totally intergated into the protolichen colonies, gaining protection in the swallows and harden within the hardened colonies, and supplying the colonies with nutrients from what little prey it catches while stationary.
>>43042166Brushy Braf use their hard bristles to drag themselves out on dry land for short periods of time. This is used as a defense and as a means to absorb more sunlight, but they must frequently return to the water to feed.
>>43042083Over generations, the Toxin-Tailed Braf's tail has gotten more thicker and larger, eventually evolving to the Thick-Toxin-Tailed Braf.
>>43042240 As colonies grow and attract Green and Bushy Braf, the protolichen develop hollow grooves that attract and house the carnivorous Lichen Braf to stave off their herbivorous cousins.
>>43037635Another strain of Front-jawed Rasp Hawa grow more muscular and better defined limbs, so as to break, and cling to larger plant life, allowing them to remain attached and devour to plant life such as >>43041324 . It has an added benefit of increased ability to defend themselves in a simple scale fight.
>>43042469The Toxin-Tailed Braf eventually develops a larger stinger along with slowly converting its legs into fins, allowing it to navigate through the sea.
>>43031380Sand Bzol Evolve a membrane to shift the sand looking for food they also get some stripes
>>43025089Bzol Spike become larger as they become more aggressive to move the lager spike the bzol develop more muscle
>>43025156Digger Bzol evolve digging fins and bigger digging teeth.
>>43025441Flat Bzol develop flatter flaps to escape predators faster.
>>43031523Flaps evolve along the fins of the Fin Arm Cerarso they can glide along the ocean currents more effectively
Updated Phylogeny Chart for your greedy eyes to gaze upon.Random Event Incoming!
>>43035257The Mulu evolve a simple eye that can distinguish shapes and patterns as such Mulu with more patterns and better mating dances thrive
>>43046392The oceans of the world this /tg/ made world have been filled with organisms that have long since adapted to either the poisons of the organisms they consumed, and the poisons within them. All is not well though, as the proliferating poisons in the water have now created a bloom of noxious arsenic poison, that rapidly spreads via the ocean currents. Only those fortunate enough to either adapt to the poison or seek refuge in the extreme shallows will make it through this eco-castastrophe. Rules:• a d6 must be rolled for each organism• Plants and Herbivores must roll a 3 or higher to live• Carnivores must roll a 4 or higher to live• Species specified as having a "toxin resistance" need to roll a 2 or higher.• Cerars, the Plate Bzols, and the Lichen colonies are unaffected.

>>43047316I guess they've been eating the shit out of toxin resistant organisms
Oh, I feel like this event should set everything back to square one for poisons and toxins. Everything is kind of living and breeding in this same poison environment that they have created themselves, so anything that survives doesn't have an upper hand on anything else when it comes to poisons and such.
>>43042291Brushy Braf avoid the toxicity of the water by becoming less reliant on it. They start spending greater periods of time on land use their bristles for a greater range of senses.
>>43047360It also hilariously doesn't let the toxic species be exempt, at most they might get 'toxin resistant' tagged onto them for this. Would be a bit comedic, even if sad, if all the toxic ones died out.
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>43041324A simpler form of Chlorophyalgea escape the toxic oceans and thrive by growing on top of dead clusters of other Chlorophyalgea.
>>43047496I guess their thriving is short lived.
>>43047496I think >>43046756 rolled for the race already, they should be fine unless those plants suddenly became carnivores.
>>43031838The long forgotten tailed braf has developed a longer body, and can digest food for longer. As a result, it is capable of much more energy storage than other species.

>>43047671That thing looks like its ready to take down some star-fighter-ships in space or something
>>43040006Some Symbiotic Bzol become rooted and stationary, feeding almost entirely through photosynthesis
>>43027193Glow Mulu have evolved a shell and migrated to deeper water unfortunately they glow even more and can bee seen from long distances
>>43047603That's a mighty fine looking planet. It would be a great candidate for an alien species' ongoing search for life in space. Maybe they'll just send an observation probe that way to see whats going on. I sure hope they serialize it properly, or it might be a disaster.
Holy shit, Librarian, you run a tight ship. As someone who participated heavily in the last Evolution Game, I'll get into this in the morning.
Nail Algae are tiny but have the ability to metabalize very small ammounts of iron as metal. They grow a single, sharp spike that makes them fatal to swallow.
As the toxin levels begin to accumulate in the ocean, the gliding braf occasionally breaks the surface of the water in order to expel it's poison excrements, while at the same time breathing in the oxygen-rich environment.To facilitate this, the fins of the gliding braf have now joined together, forming a reverse-delta shaped pectoral fin. Signs of a dorsal fin is also showing, explaining their fast turning capabilities. As the creature spends more of it's time in lighter areas, it has begun to eschew it's light sensitive cells for a pair of rudimentary compound eyes. The reliance on sight-based hunting has drastically weakened the effectiveness of it's original Sonar capabilities, though it can still be used for long-range detection.
>>43025525Leaf algea washing up on dry land begin to thrive. They come in during high tides and take in more sunlight in air then in the water, then absorb nutrients and breed with each tide cycle.
>>43047702>>43047772Some Derpy Mulu move into deeper waters and begin hunting Glow Mulu exclusively
>>43047817Oh, sorry, I negtected to mention a distance of some 400 light years and a speed of maybe 8% the speed of light. Generations of the far future will reap the benefits of this probe's data.
>>43047817I should imagine when it gets there it will look more like this.
>>43047599Tail Braf now with more fin
>>43048116The Tail-braf grows even wider, to accommodate for larger food, and gains a wide tail to compensate for its larger mass.
>>43048276I keep derping a lot.
I find you guy's lack of coming up with selection pressures to cause given changes, horrifying.
>>43046047Digger bzol begin developing mineral deposits- a byproduct of their method of finding food- on their lower halves, protecting them from predators as they dig.
>>43048363It's almost like a signature, really.
>>43031949being slow Braf sometimes have a hard time just bumping into prey even with their feelers. Other sensors have developed along the head alongside the feelers these help the Braf to sense its surroundings by smell. This primitive sense of smell usually leads them to corpses and other decay and so these Braf become scavengers and more omnivorous
>>43047772Glow Mulu always seem to be on the run this pressure has forced some to evolve a filtering mouth so they can feed as they swim
